A petition on President Barack Obama's "We the People" website asks the administration to pressure the Jacksonville Jaguars to sign quarterback Tim Tebow, who was recently released by the New York Jets.

"If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy," the petition argues.


Unfortunately for some fans, Jaguars general manager Dave Caldwell and team owner Shad Khan have both denied any interest in picking up the former University of Florida quarterback.

The petition, posted April 30, has only 58 signatures as of Sunday, far from the 100,000 signatures required for an official response from the White House.
